A Few Notes About Registration:
Priority Registration. Registration is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents of NISRA's member districts who register prior to the deadline have priority over out-of-district participants. Out-of-district residents are welcome to register for all programs, however a non-resident fee is charged.
Suggested Ability Level. Although some programs are offered according to disability classifications, these classifications are only considered recommendations. If the participant meets the social, physical, behavioral and age requirements of any program, he or she can register for it.
Inclusion. NISRA also provides assistance to those wishing to participate in their home park district or recreation department program. Types of assistance may include staff training, adapted equipment, sign language assistance or a program aide. Call NISRA or your home district staff to inquire about the inclusion process.
Resident Priority Registration for Winter/Spring 2017 ends December 12
Non-resident Registration begins December 13
Final Registration Deadline for Winter is December 16*
Final Registration Deadline & Payments due for Spring 2017 is February 16*
Residents of NISRA's 13 member districts will be registered first. Non-residents may submit their registration at any time, however, their registration will be processed after resident registration ends. NOTE: Online registrations will be processed by the system, during regular business hours, in the order they are submitted.
*NISRA is adhering to the registration deadlines. If your registration is late, it will be held until the week of January 16 to be reviewed to see if the participant can be added to any program(s).
